We’re back at Christ Church Grove Farm on Wednesday, July 26 at 8:30am for our always fascinating, enjoyable, and poignant Veterans Breakfast Club in-person breakfast program.

Our last breakfast in the area featured Ann Kaltreider, a retired Master Sgt. who enlisted in the WAC in 1972 and served over 40 years in the US Army and National Guard. Chuck Spring, center, arrived in Dong Ha, Vietnam, in January 1966 on an USAF spotter plane to set up and run RADAR at a combat base that the US Marines would later use. “I wondered why we got so much training on the M-16 rifle in the Air Force. I found out my first night when we got mortared,” he said. On the right is Russ Battiato, retired Army Special Forces NCO who ended his career training candidates who wanted to become “Green Berets.” Russ still jumps from airplanes in tribute to WWII veterans and travels the world doing demonstration jumps.

Join us on July 26 to meet these veterans and others. You’ll walk in, pick up your name badge, pay $15 if you plan to eat (no cost for those who don’t), and meet others who are there to hear and share the stories. Breakfast is served at 8:30am. At 9:00am, we start the program. For the next 90 minutes, we circulate the room with the microphone and have veterans share a slice of their service experience. You never know what you’re going to hear, and there’s always new people with new memories to offer.
